Hi, I am 14 years old and I got my tonsils out on Tuesday and it is now Saturday. The pain on day one and two was manageable, but day three was unbelievable. The pain made me want to run off a cliff. I am now on day four and the pain level has reduced a bit. I am really hoping it Is starting to get better. Not many people on this sight have said when it will get better, and that's all I want to know, please if anyone has any idea how long it will take to get better please tell me. It is hard to eat but I have to force myself to eat as the doctor said my recovery will be more speedy the sooner I eat solids. I have terrible ear aches and I can't talk. I really want to get better now.
